Woman On Disability Caught Belly Dancing

A woman who was getting $850 a
month in alimony because she was supposedly disabled and unable to work had her payments slashed after her ex-husband spotted online photos of her belly dancing.

Brian McGurk of New York, went to court after discovering a blog that showed
his 43-year-old ex-wife dancing at a gallery.

In other Internet postings, she wrote about dancing vigorously
for several hours every day.

Dorothy McGurk told the court that the dancing was physical
therapy for injuries she suffered in a car accident in the
mid-1990s.

A county judge didn’t buy it — and reduced her payments to $400
per month.

The judge also ordered her to pay her ex-husband’s legal fees
and 60 percent from the sale of their home.
